Dove of Peace

06.16.18 Dove of Peace navyMy theme for Christmas in July seems to unintentionally be based around peace – something I’m sure we all wish there was more of in our world.  This navy, white, silver and gold card is certainly peaceful.  Our dove is from the new Serene Garden stamp set found on page 166 in the new catalog.  The Garden Scene Framelits provide the die for the dove.  We will be seeing more of this set in the future.  The background DSP is from the gorgeous springtime foil DSP available during Sale-A-Brations.  This DSP features leaves in both silver and gold.  The dove is popped up on dimensionals on a silver background framed in navy and clutches a Garden Green “olive branch”. 

06.16.18 Dove of Peace Smoky SlateThe die for “peace” is retired and several years old. Somehow we continue to use it every year.  In the first sample, peace has been “glittered” with Wink of Stella as has the “olive branch.”  In this second sample, the dove was stamped in Smoky Slate instead of navy and “peace” remains the un-glittered cs.

This is an easy but elegant card.  The cut-out work will be done for you – your job will be to simply put the pieces together. 

As a reminder, the Christmas in July Stamp-A-Stack will be held on Thursday, July 19 from 11 am to 7 pm, and on Saturday, July 21 from 9 am to 4 pm.  The cost, which includes your very own Wink of Stella to take home, is $14 for 4 cards, $21 for 8 cards, $30 for 12 cards,  and $38 for 16 cards.  I am asking for attendance acknowledgements now as I have out-of-town company in early July so I am doing the majority of my prep work now.  I have 54 poinsettias stamped and cu,t and need to know how many more we will need – 10?  20?  30? 

One additional Christmas card remains – Christmas reindeer.  It will be posted shortly.
